Baby Artichokes and Cod Pieces

Wednesday 2 September
Exceptionally, our local Kroger's had boxes of baby artichokes, of the sort that we usually have to drive to Hyde Park to buy. 
We didn't want to do our usual Greek-style stew, so we just boiled and fried the trimmed artichokes, like this.

After that, we marinated some cod pieces (no, not Elizabethan male posturing, TJ's frozen best) in lemon and oil and salt, and fried them up quickly in the oil from the artichokes.  This was a mistake, as cod tends to be tough, and that made it tougher.  Next time, we should simmer it slowly, with tomatoes or something.
